In April, Google integrated its video call service Meet into Gmail on the web, making it possible to start or join a Meet call from Gmail with a single click. Now, Google is also integrating Meet with Gmail on smartphones.
On Tuesday, Google announced it’s adding a new “Meet” tab in its Gmail smartphone app. In the tab, you’ll see upcoming meetings that you have scheduled in Google Calendar, with the ability to join them with a tap.
You’ll also be able to tap on “New meeting” to start a meeting, schedule a meeting in Google Calendar, or get a meeting link you can share with others. Finally, if you have a meeting code, you’ll be able to tap on “Join with a code” to enter the code and join the meeting.
Users who don’t need this functionality will be able to remove the Meet tab by going to Gmail’s Settings, tapping on their account, and unchecking Meet.
You can find more details on how to start or join video calls from Gmail in Google’s Help Center.
Google says the new features will be rolling out on both Android and iOS “in the coming weeks.”
